And the Winner of Spacesuit–Fashioning Apollo is…
Congratulations to the Threads online member who was randomly selected in our current giveaway. Tootsiebelle will receive a copy of Spacesuit—Fashioning Apollo (The MIT Press, 2011) by Nicholas de Monchaux. The book is an incredibly well-researched chronicle about the Apollo spacesuits and the history surrounding them. It explains the design history of the suits, their complexity and their adaptation—it’s like reading the detailed history of the Apollo spacesuits through the eyes of the tailor.
Congratulations again! Look for more book giveaways coming soon.
Just wanted to say THANKS! I've been to NASA in Texas and have seen the spacesuits up close, and am looking very much forward to reading about their construction! And thanks for providing such a wonderful sewing magazine (Threads) all these years. I've been a subscriber since almost the beginning. My sister recently reminded me that I had given her a subscription as a gift when the magazine first came to life, and because of that, her collection goes all the way back to the first issue. I later subscribed for myself because she raved about it so much. Thanks again!
How did I miss this? OMG I love all things Apollo! well congrats Tootsiebelle!
